It would be very difficult to find a judge would would grant custody to someone with no means to take care of the children. The father could reapply for custody at a later date if he improves his situation.

Joint custody is between two parents, which are usually a mother and a father.

An unmarried mother has custody of her child until the father has established his paternity in court and requested joint custody.

Either parent can have physical custody in a joint custody arrangement. If there is a court order granting the mother physical custody the father should notify the court of the mother's incarceration and have that order modified unless he wants the mother to resume physical custody when she is released.

No. The unmarried mother has sole custody until the father has established his paternity legally, in court and then requested (and obtained) joint custody and visitations.No. The unmarried mother has sole custody until the father has established his paternity legally, in court and then requested (and obtained) joint custody and visitations.No. The unmarried mother has sole custody until the father has established his paternity legally, in court and then requested (and obtained) joint custody and visitations.No. The unmarried mother has sole custody until the father has established his paternity legally, in court and then requested (and obtained) joint custody and visitations.

Not without a change in the orders, but Joint Physical cannot be applied either.

Can a father who has joint custody with the mother stop her from visiting another state with the child

It depends on the law where you live and your custody order. If the father has sole legal custody (as opposed to physical custody) he would be able to make that decision without input from the mother. If legal custody is joint or the mother has sole legal custody, no he could not.

By petitioning the court to give joint custody to the parents. In most state, Joint Legal Custody is the standard. If you mean Joint Physical Custody, with 50/50 Custody, this is more complicated, requiring preparation similar to petitioning for full custody.

As the father has joint legal custody of the child he can not say he does not want the child at the paramour.

It depends on whether the case has ever been adjudicated in family court. If paternity has never been established the mother has sole custody. If paternity was established and the father was granted joint custody or visitation rights then those orders stand until they have been modified by the court.It depends on whether the case has ever been adjudicated in family court.

By filing for custody modification in the court with jurisdiction, then prove to the court why it would be in the best interests of your child to award joint custody.

No , not usually.Don't do it without permission or you may get your Dad in trouble.

If a judge has granted you visitation rights, then it's called kidnapping, if you have never been granted visitations, time to get a lawyer, and get your visitations, you have rights too as a father, the DUI will possibly help you get joint or sole custody, good luck!

Yes, if the court feels it would be in the best interests of the child to award joint custody.

It depends on what type of custody agreement you have with the child's father. If there is visitation set in place and you have joint custody, you cannot move out of state without his permission.

If you have Joint Legal Custody, then neither parent can physically change residences without the approval of the other. If, per the question, the daughter is living with the father, or the father has "primary" custody, then you can move wherever "you" want, at least in my perception.

Yes if the father has joint custody he may leave the state with the child for a short period for purposes of a vacation.

He has every right to go back to court to petition for joint custody, yes.

Only with permission of both parents. Your marriage to the father with joint custody does not automatically confer parental rights including access to medical records without written permission from both parents in cases of joint custody and may not even apply if the father had full legal and physical custody. This is federal law (HIPAA). If you were to legally adopt the child, those rights were be conferred by virtue of the adoption.

No, you can not, unless the custody order is modified by the court.

Immigration status generally has no bearing when deciding custody.
